That's Seargant Pug to You, Dammit
February 8, 2006 5:36 PM   Subscribe

As a proud patriot & supporter of our nation's armed forces, my greatest personal shame comes from the fact that my pugs aren't fit for service (Lola has cuddling issues that would prove a hindrance on the battlefield, whereas Oscar would run afowl of the "don't ask, don't tell" laws). Fortunately, the good people at Pets In Uniform will gladly do an awful photoshop job to make it look like they actually served their nation proudly.

I clicked on the ad that said 'Bird Diaper FlightSuits'. Yes I did. I had to know. I'm glad I did, because as it turns out, it's the home of the revolutionary bird diaper. "There was a time birds went diaperless", they'll say.

The Bird Diaper Flight Suits # is 888 412 POOP. "For One To Poop," get it???

And for the record, those are awesome Photoshop jobs.

Can't they fix the "green eye" that the animals sometimes get?

"or other pet in full military regalia"
I kinda want to blow twenty bucks to see what kind of job they would do putting a pet octupus in full military regalia.

Question: where did they get the original photos from? Are real soldiers decorated in real medals? Because if they are, I'm sure some uniform code-breaking is happening here.

I want this bird's head in an airforce uniform.

Why is that Cat wearing a Combat Infantryman Badge? It seems more likely that a cat would have a non-infantry MOS

My life would be complete if I could get my Bird Diaper FlightSuit to feature an enlarged crotch with "Mission Accomplished" emblazoned upon it.

I bet they could make even a pussy bitch wimp like Barney's dad look halfway-convincing in a flight suit!

"...my pugs aren't fit for service..."

It's not just yours. They're all miserable, foul, traitorous creatures who would gladly team up with Al-Qaeda if they could get an extra ration of kibble.

When it comes time to defend this great nation, I'd turn to them before I'd call on you, mcd!

I just bet you would, wouldn't you?

AND NOW WE SEE WHY:

I've been passing this one around as a non-sequitur in IM conversations for a few months now, and it never fails to get at least a spit take. Kneel before Zod!

Pretenders—bah! Cher Ami, the decorated hero of World War I, rose above them all.

mcd, that made me laugh like nothing else in days; however, the pugs are Chinese dogs in nature, so they would have fought on the side of the Allied forces in WWII. Nice try. Now, your average German Shepherd, on the other hand...

mediareport - it's loading fine for me. Are you in China? Because I understand there's some sort of firewall.

It's fine now, must've been temporary. "PET HEAD GOES HERE" is my new favorite saying.

That's great PurplePorpoise! I guess I'll have to keep searching for something frivolous to spend that money on.
